Adolf Ciborowski (25 May 1919 - 26 January 1987) was a Polish architect.

Ciborowski was born and died in Warsaw. He was the Chief Architect of Warsaw in 1956-1964.[1] He was hired as a planner for war-damaged Hannover and was the first foreigner to receive a town-planning prize from the University of Hanover (in 1965). He also worked as consultant on the master plan for Baghdad and supervised the reconstruction of Skopje after its destruction by an earthquake in 1963.[2][3]
